Abstract

This project looked at the feasibility of converting Massachusetts’ commercial heating sector into a wood pellet heated one. The availability of the wood pellets and wood pellet boilers were observed, as well as the availability of other fuel sources and the emissions released from said boiler systems. Anna Maria College, which recently converted to wood pellet heating, is used as an example in this project.
